Quote of the Day
You rarely pay the rent by doing Shakespeare or Ibsen.
I rarely read or buy a book because of a review.
The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it.
I've actually, very rarely have I worked in my own voice. I've played, I think, Russian, American, Northern from the North of England. All sorts of different accents I've worked in.
Ever since I bought and started flying an airplane, it's been almost exclusively for business. I love to fly. It's a great joy to me. But rarely do I use it for any kind of pleasure, other than it is a pleasure to fly.
As far as modern writing is concerned, it is rarely rewarding to translate it, although it might be easy. Translation is very much like copying paintings.

The media bring our wars home, but only rarely have they been able to do it in complete freedom.
I rarely read children's books.
As a matter of fact, I rarely ever play myself.
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
I really think the biopic thing so rarely works, because people's lives don't have a dramatic shape that can be satisfying.
If I ever get looks on the street, which, for the record, is almost never, it's rarely because they think I'm someone they saw in a movie. More often someone sees me and thinks, 'Hey, was that guy my waiter the other night?'
Filibusters have proliferated because under current rules just one or two determined senators can stop the Senate from functioning. Today, the mere threat of a filibuster is enough to stop a vote; senators are rarely asked to pull all-nighters like Jimmy Stewart in 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.'
Film acting is really the trick of doing moments. You rarely do a take that lasts more than 20 seconds. You really earn your spurs acting onstage. I needed to do that for myself. I would hate to say at the end of everything that I never did a stage play.
I'm very rarely in the gym. My workouts are predominantly outside, in nature.
At a moment that comes rarely in the life of a country. It is a time when destiny is ours to hold.
Neither Rainer Werner, nor any of us could have succeeded, or produced the number of films that we did, just on our own. We showed our films to each other, discussed them vigorously and rarely agreed.
Fate is never too generous even to its favorites. Rarely do the gods grant a mortal more than one immortal deed.
Economic sanctions rarely achieve the desired results.

Well, there's just some universal truths in a way that I've just observed to be true. You read Voltaire. You read modern literature. Anywhere you go, there's these observations about romantic love and what it does people, and these rotten feelings that rarely are people meaning to do that to each other.

Max von Sydow

Michael K. Simpson
